Musical Monday - 4/18/11

Whoa!?!?  It's been a while since our last musical monday, but it's here again.  I'm not going to make any promises on having a new musical monday for the next year or something else outlandish that I can't keep because that's just not cool of me to let you down.  So from now on, I'm just going to post a musical monday whenever I can.

Now on to the music.  I've posted this band before, but they just came out with a new album and it freakin' rocks!  Emery is one of my favorite bands and since they are from Rock Hill, SC it makes them even better because they are local.  As you may or may not know I love the last song of a band's album.  I really feel like that's where they can really express themselves as a band and not try to make the song a "radio hit".  Of course some last songs are just horrible, but most of the time it's a great song to jam to.  And Emery comes through with a great one on their latest effort, 'We Do What We Want'.  Emery is a post-hardcore, screamo (not crazy screamo), rock band and they can definitely rock the house but I love 'Fix Me'.  It's a low key acoustical song that speaks volumes.  Give it a listen and let me know what you think!

We Built a House

Here's a video of the men's trip to Costa Rica that I went on this past February.  I put this together for our church's 'missions night'.

Every time I travel to Costa Rica, I leave a piece of my heart there.  I leave it with the people that I meet and serve.  I truly believe that one day Heather and I will live in Central America.
